When we tell people the full name of our community is “Charleston Traditions at Bowling Green,” they often are interested but uncertain by what we mean. What does the traditional lifestyle of Charleston, South Carolina have to do with a community located in Wake Forest, North Carolina, nearly 300 miles away?
“Plenty,” we tell them. Our homes offer the elegance associated with that city on a more intimate scale and a more affordable price. We retain the classic Colonial architecture associated with the plantation homes built in the 1800s while providing contemporary conveniences in the interior.
Working with our premier builders, Prewitt Custom Homes and Walker DesignBuild, we have crafted single family Charleston-style homes with covered, long porches (or piazzas, if you prefer) on the sides and backs along with tall, spacious two-story plans one might have found at upscale residences more than 200 years ago. We have laid out our lots the “long way” to reflect how classic Charleston homes maximized their lots with street frontage.
At the same time, we have five floor plans that let you choose what amenities will work best for your living needs today. All feature two-car garage, spacious master suites dining and living room areas, and at least three bedrooms and two and a half baths to give you and your family plenty of elbow space. Each has the quality and attention to detail you would expect from a new home built now as well.
The result is a community that is unique to Wake Forest yet feels like a natural extension of the town as well. It’s walkable and friendly, but at the same time distinctive from other neighborhoods surrounding it due to its emphasis on classical style. You get all that plus the advantages of being in a town that is prosperous and planned to grow smartly in the future, with a great deal of nearby recreational, educational and cultural activities to enjoy too. Sounds pretty inviting to us.
